POST CONVERSATION BANTER .
Braden: Looks like they didn’t make it to the museum. But the memorial da américa ltina is an interesting place Could you tell us a bit about it Thássia?
Thássia: The Memorial da América Latina or “Latin America Memorial” is a large museum in São Paulo designed by famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. It represents the multi-national effort of Brazilians and other countries in middle and south America to unite to overcome their shared difficulties.
Braden: Gathering together as a community to overcome difficulty is a very Brazilian sentiment and to me the Memorial da América Latina is a visible example of that spirit.
Thássia: There are many works of art there that have deep significance to Brazil and all of Latin America.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Thássia: In this lesson we’ll learn the phrase “o que houve.”
Braden: “O que houve?” has a similar meaning and use as “what’s the matter?”, “what happened?” or “what’s wrong?” In the dialogue for this lesson, Renata asked “O que houve Michael?” to mean “What’s wrong Michael?”
Thássia: The next expression we’ll look at is “na hora.” “Na hora” translates to "in the hour" but means “on time” and is used the same way as in English.
Braden: In the dialogue, Renata commented about being on time, “Nunca conseguimos chegar na hora” which we translated as “We can’t ever arrive on time.”
Thássia: Next we have the word “reforma.” “Reforma” is the Portuguese word for “refurbishment” or “remodel.” In the dialogue we heard Machael saying “Hoje é o último dia de visita ao museu antes da reforma” to mean “Today was the last day before the remodel.”
Braden: Our last expression we’ll look at today is “bem mais tarde.”
Thássia: “bem mais trade” means “much later” or “quite a bit later.” In the dialogue, Carla said “Ele fica aberto até bem mais tarde” to mean “It’s open much later.”

Lesson focus

Braden: What the focus of this lesson Thássia?
Thássia: The focus of this lesson is the irregular verb “fazer.”
Braden: In the dialogue we heard, "Não faz essa cara Michael." which we translated as "Don’t make that face, Michael.”
Thássia: the word "faz" is a conjugated form of the verb fazer. The verb fazer means “to make” or “to do.” and is an irregular verb.That means even though it is technically an -er verb, it doesn’t follow the regular conjugation patterns we learned in Absolute Beginner Season 2 lesson 9.
Braden: Let's conjugate the verb fazer. Thássia, how do you say "I do"
Thássia: Eu faço
Braden: and You do
Thássia: Você faz
Braden: and he/she/it does
Thássia: Ele ou ela faz
Braden: and we do
Thássia: nós fazemos
Braden: and y'all do
Thássia: Vocês fazem
Braden: and they do
Thássia: eles ou elas fazem.
Braden: For the Portugal Portuguese speakers it's "tu fazes" and "vós fazeis."
Thássia: The sentence O que fazemos na sala de aula? means “What do we do in the classroom?”
Braden: and Onde fazemos exercícios? literally translates to “Where do we make exercises?” but it means "Where do we exercise?"
Thássia: “Fazer” has many meanings and is a frequently used verb in Portuguese expressions.
Braden: For example, the phrase faz tempo translates to makes time but it means It's been a long time.
Thássia: and the expression fazer 27 anos literally translates to makes 27 years but it means to turn 27 years old.
Braden: And one last example is the expression fazer ligação which translates to make connection but means to call someone as in call them on the phone.
Thássia: The verb fazer is one of the top 10 most used irregular verbs in Portuguese.

Oi, bom dia.


This is regarding the comment from Sam. I can also hear the differences between the pronunciations of the letter "r". I started off listening and watching Paloma's videos.


When I listen to and repeat each line of the video, I just use the "paulistano" version of the letter "r" when saying the sentences out loud.

Oi Ahmed,

A frase Está muito tarde para sairmos. está correta. O pronome "nós" aqui foi omitido.


Oi Sam,

Você está certo. You're right.

Both ways are correct. To keep the uniformity, we'll keep Thassia's version menaing "late, afternoon". And you got it, the other audio was recorded by me :flushed:

That's nice that you can already hear the accent difference between regions. My Portuguese is "paulistano", from São Paulo :wink:


Let us know if you have any questions!

Olá Paloma,


In the vocabulary section, why is "tarde" listed twice and why does it have two definitions. Isn't the difference just that Thassia produced the "R" with a breath-like "H" sound whilst the other girl (I don't know if that's you Paloma) pronounces a rolling-R typical of French and Spanish-speaking countries?


Muito obrigado,


Sam

Olá Ahmed,


Isso mesmo, "sairmos" está no conjuntivo.

As for the mistake, I couldn't find it in the last page. Can you send me which part is wrong?


Obrigada,

Paloma

Sim , mas "sairmos" é a conjugação do verbo "sair" no "conjuntivo" !!!!! ok.


Tem um erro : na úlitma página, se escrive : ''Ele'' read the time wrong!!!! what a declious mix :sunglasses::smile:

Olá Ahmed,


Desculpa pela confusão.

Aqui usamos "sairmos" porque estamos referindo a "nós" - nós sairmos.

"Está muito tarde para sair" seria mais geral, não especificamente falando sobre nós.


As frases da seção Sample Sentences estão conectadas com as palavras do vocabulário. Por exemplo a frase que você perguntou está conectada com o vocabulário "tarde".


Espero que essa explicação ajude.
